Your choice of songs can actually define you, music has lots of effect in our lives, we tend to listen to songs for different reasons and purposes either to dance, heal ourselves, meditate, reminisce or even relate to past experiences, as the case maybe we all have reasons why we choose to listen to the kind of songs we play on a regular basis. No form of art connects easily to the mind than music does, music connects directly to the soul.
Most people today choose to listen to songs that pass or convey little or less inspiration to them, just dancing to the rhythm and sound of a song isn’t a cool form of expressing it, although it ain’t bad but music can be expressed or used in different forms that is benefiting to your mind and soul.
The question is ”how do you want your life to be ?? “
One of the answers to that question is your choice of music. A research shows that music has a major influence and profound effect in our life.
Each genre of music has its own customs attached to it, for me rap songs are known for their poetic verses although it doesn’t seem to uphold what it stands for in recent times, there are still great rap songs out there that pass on lots of powerful messages. Have you heard of the pessimistic by wale and jcole ? Where they poetically talk about hope ? Most good songs comes with powerful messages we can relate to and there are tendencies it affects our lives in positive ways, but when we just flow with the rhythm and sound of songs without relating to the messages the song carries, we fail to inspire ourselves.
I was heartbroken at the time marvins room by drake was released, and I related to it quickly the first time I played it, the song was about him (drake) feeling down from a heartbreak he just experienced, so i connected with the theme of the song, and I was able to go through my heartbreak at that time easily.
What am trying to paraphrase from this experience and article in general is that we should listen to songs for specific reasons, reasons that can affect us in positive ways, just dancing or listening to songs without no form of inspiration depicts low level of character.
Choosing the right songs to listen to is relevant for the development of your mind and soul, get drawn to songs that have good and positive messages in them, art can be expressed in different forms and its our duty to relate to them, not just relating but trying to get the message the performer is passing on.
When a songs doesn’t pass on a good and positive message, stay away from it because it tends to reflect you in a manner that isn’t acceptable or admired by people, it passes on negative energy and it doesn’t help in the development of your mind and soul.
You can be a good source of inspiration to people by listening to the right songs. Do you want to be nuisance just because of your poor choice of songs ? Or a person who is admired by all and inspires people in a good and positive manner.
